Teach For Australia
Type of Organisation
In Australia, children from the lowest income households are on average three years behind in school.
Challenge yourself to make a difference.
Few other careers offer the opportunity for genuine responsibility, autonomy and impact from day one.
Our vision to achieve educational equity begins inside the classroom, but Teach For Australia Associates don’t start out as teachers – in fact, they come from all academic and professional backgrounds. We look for well-rounded and passionate individuals, who have the qualities to create change.
Teach For Australia is an innovative non-profit organisation and part of a global movement dedicated to improving equity in education. Our vision is of an Australia where all children, regardless of background, attain an excellent education.
As an Associate of our award-winning Leadership Development Program, you’ll become part of a passionate community committed to change. Over two years, you will:
teach at a school serving a low socioeconomic community, with full salary and benefits;
earn a Master of Teaching (Secondary) – Professional Practice on an assisted scholarship; and
receive one-on-one coaching and mentoring and contextual professional development.
Through this work, not only will you develop the skills and experience to enable you to lead effectively, you will have the opportunity to make a tangible positive impact on students, schools and communities—every single day.
Whether you choose to continue teaching, or aspire to a career in business, policy, innovation or elsewhere, Teach For Australia will continue to inspire, connect and empower you to lead change.
